“Choose a seat, not a side. We’re all family once the knot is tied!”
With so much hustle and bustle, you may be wondering how to take the time include your family on your wedding day and make them feel special. After all, these people have supported you the most throughout the years and made you the person that you are today. To help you find the best ways to show the fam some love on the big day, we are sharing some of our favorite ways that our Treasury on the Plaza couples have cherished their loved ones!
1. Take a quiet moment to finish getting ready with someone special
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Amber walked down the aisle with her uncle on her wedding day. Even though her father wasn’t able to be there, she took a piece of him with her by wearing a pair of his shoes as she walked down the aisle.
4. Have a special song with your mom, dad, aunt, or uncle? Invite them up for a dance during your wedding reception!
Showcase pictures of parents, grandparents, and other family members on your wedding day. Include a candle or flowers for those who can’t be with you. A memory table is a beautiful way to honor someone’s memory and have their presence with you as you take the next step.
Rachel had gifts in the Banker’s Lounge for Jon and her dad to open while getting ready.
10. Do a private first look
Maybe your parent isn’t one for hankies or watches – no problem! Set aside time for a private first look with the special person who will be walking you down the aisle. (Just make sure to bring your photographer along to capture these sweet shots!)
